Owners of gas dryers need to be aware that inferior dryer vents or those clogged with dryer lint can cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide to leak into homes
Garden City NY – The Garden City Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says all dryers must be vented to the outdoors to ensure safety. All fuel burning appliances, including gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide hazard when not properly vented. With the frequency of home fires and carbon monoxide poisoning increasing during the fall and winter months, this is a good time to be sure all heat producing appliances are safe.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that interferes with how the body processes oxygen; it can be dangerous and deadly. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, nausea and disorientation. The dangerous gases are produced inside homes where carbon-containing fuels are incompletely burned. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard eliminates a number of dryer related hazards.
Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://gardencity.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) warns his customers that poorly vented gas appliances, including clothes dryers, can allow carbon monoxide into the home. Due to increased consumer awareness, homes are being upgraded for energy efficiency; therefore, increasing the risk with poorly vented appliances. Bob urges homeowners to schedule dryer vent cleaning service regularly to minimize the risk of dryer related hazards.
It is important to be sure all combustion equipment and appliances in a home are properly installed and have adequate ventilation. Have the Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard perform an inspection and upgrades if necessary to ensure the clothes dryer is operating safely and efficiently.
